The Sacrifice: Kathleen Benner Duble


At the peak on the Salem Witch Trials one family is threatened. Abigail is a fun loving 10-year-old girl who lives in the small town where everyone knows everyone. But can anyone be trusted? Young Abigail’s aunt Elizabeth is Accused of being a witch and I’m prison at Salem. Later Abigail and her sister are also denounced by her friend. As requested by there family they share the same cell and their aunt. They spend many weeks in the prison, surrounded by rats and sickness, there health crumbles and their aunt soon dies. That’s when her comes up with a plan for them to tell the judge that she is there teacher, because her mother is pregnant they cannot imprison her and Abigail and her sister are free to go. But at the Trial Abigail speaks up with what she believes in and brings this insanity to an end.


This is a very good book and is on my must read list. It teaches you a lot about the Salem Witch trails. I would advise this book for a book report or something like that.
